Dear Sammy,

What should I wear for Mother's Day? I am going to a nice restaurant for brunch with my mom, aunts, nana and cousins. I'm thinking a dress but not too pricey. Ideas?



Dear Keilie,

I only received your question 15 minutes ago but am already getting right down to it because a). I love that you call your grandmother Nana (my old college roommate used to call her grandma Nanners) and b). because luckily, I already have an answer prepared.

Since I am a self-proclaimed awesome gift-giver, at this point on the calendar I'm usually asked "What should I get my Mom for Mother's Day", as opposed to "What should I wear to a brunch honoring my Mom for Mother's Day". Nevertheless, my style sensibilities are at your service.

If you're looking for an inexpensive afternoon dress that will leave a good impression, hightail it over to the barn, dressbarn that is, for a virtual petting zoo of affordable frocks to choose from.


My top choice is this Asymmetrical Tulip Blouson Dress, a romantic month of May mini that features a lovely floral tulip pattern befitting for any Sunday brunch, and a flattering one-shoulder silhouette that will show off what your momma gave you at a length that should still be Mom and Nana approved. It's sexy enough to recycle for your next dinner date, sweet enough to sport while sipping mimosas with the fam, and a steal at only $44.99.

Can't decide between the 400+ dressbarn dress options available in misses, plus sizes and petites? What the hay. Save $10 when you buy two dresses, which should still leave you some cash left for flowers, a gift, and to pick up the check for Mom because hello, you weren't raised in a barn.



Having a fashion dilemma or crisis?

Need to know what top goes with what bottom?

Don't go it alone. Ask Sammy!
